As we get closer to November, more morsels of goodies about the show, Vikings, are being released. Entertainment Weekly just released some exclusive images of Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) closest confidant, Floki, played by Gustaf Skarsgård.
Floki is an interesting and super complicated character. He was fiercely loyal to King Ragnar and since the death of Ragnar, his wife (Helga), and daughter all in season 4, Floki is lost. In the finale, while the sons of Ragnar dealt with the aftermath of the war with King Aelle and King Ecbert, Floki decided to venture out on his own. He is fundamentally broken and lets the fate of the gods take him wherever they wish.
With no family remaining, fans were left wondering what more could be in store for our quirky shipbuilder. Based on the images below, there’s still a good amount of story to be told. In the premiere trailer for the show, Floki is seen sailing on a ship. It appears that he heads to a new land which is now known as Iceland. He lands on the shore by a giant waterfall.
Watch the clip of Floki as he discovers a foreign world.
Check out some of EW’s exclusive images below.
Vikings returns on November 29 on HISTORY.
